How many of you have used the Blue Dot loads for game....ie...Deer or Pigs?

I ask because I am dancing with a 26" .223 bolt gun and love it so far.....

What distance?
What bullet?
How far would you stretch your shots on game of that size?

Thanks

PM's are starting to float in, so thought I'd send this to the top again for this season...

I just loaded 50 of my favorite 223 loads. I load 10grs blue dot with 50 hornady spsx with rem 7 1/2 benchrest primers in LC brass. Have shot these for years, since I first saw seafires workup using blue dot.
Have used it on groundhogs out to 200 yards and works well. I like just using them to target shoot and woods walking.

Blue Dot is the fo-shizzle, bruddahs!


Up hills slow,
Down hills fast
Tonnage first and
Safety last.
